2017 booth # 130/131

We create silk scarves in the booth at the show, using an old fashioned water marbling process. Acrylic paints are floated upon a liquid medium, manipulated into design with comb and stylus and captured instantly on white, habotai silk. Each piece is a one of a kind original. We encourage showgoers to participate in the creation of their own scarf, becoming a true, interactive art experience.

Additionally we offer for sale originals created in my studio, using several different sizes and types of silk.
